On the daily chart, Ethereum (ETH) price retraced nearly 30% from the swing highs of $3,284.75 and tested February lows at $2,300. Investors respected the demand zone extending from $2,159 and $2,300 as buying emerges near the mentioned levels.
Now, if the price sustains above the session’s high then next it would take out the critical 200-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $3,246.
Furthermore, an acceptance above the mentioned moving average would aim for the January 12 highs of $3,420.08.
On the other side, a break below Tuesday’s low will initiate some fresh round of selling in the asset. The immediate downside target could be found around the horizontal support zone of $2,560.78.
RSI: The Daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) reads at 53 above the average line.
MACD: The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) hovers below the midline but with a bullish bias.
